The Complete Book of Heroic Australian Women

The Complete Book of Heroic Australian Women

Providing inspiration for today’s women, in this book of profiles, Susanna de Vries examines what it takes to be a truly heroic Australian. Women of grit and courage, women of integrity, resilience and resourcefulness. They faced different tests — harshness as pioneers in outback Australia; the turmoil of war — but when encountering adversity, even death, each proved her mettle. We of the Never-Never, these are women who displayed extraordinary determination in often terrible circumstances.
